Staff member
"In its quest to make more airwaves available for consumer wireless devices, the Obama administration said Monday it is evaluating a chunk of spectrum currently being used by the Defense Department and federal law enforcement for possible commercial uses.

The Nation Telecommunications and Information Administration said the swath of airwaves, totaling 95 megahertz in the 1755 to 1850 band, will be evaluated for its technical properties and costs to repurpose into commercial mobile broadband networks."
